    S4 Tyre Wear

    If you rotate wheels regularly it shouldn’t be a problem anyway. im getting 20k out of a set of tyres and I’m probably changing them prematurely with a few thousand miles left ( because I put a winter set on and then in the spring I don’t like to put summer wheels back on with minimal tread...

    Audi B9 S4 Avant Boot Storage

    Yep - got my tow hitch in the right void and some general do-dads and a compressor, jump start booster battery thing in the left. Under the floor around the wheel I’ve secreted a fire extinguisher, some seat covers and some other useful stuff. My bits and bobs on the left side are all in some...

    B9 S4 Brake Feel

    Is the fluid fresh ? How are the disks ? Good condition or lipped / scored or not ? How much life is in the pads ? If they’re relatively fresh, maybe pop them out and deglaze them with some sandpaper and try re-bedding them... costs nothing just a bit of time ....

    WANTED 1 x 19in genuine RS alloy. Got to be a1 unmarked condition, round and hold air. Had a nasty curbing incident and it’s probably better to replace than refurbish I think. cheers Ben

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    NVidia units can have google maps reactivated - the instructions are here somewhere and is possible with obd11 or vcds. No expensive Audi connect licence required but it means you don’t have the other Audi connect features or live traffic data overlay on the google maps! but - some here have...

    Brake pad and wear sensors S4 B9 avant

    Not done the fronts yet but back pads have wear sensors that are removable and interchangeable between pads.... if you’re half handy and have basic tools the fronts are simple, no different to any other car. Wear sensor is only on one side on the back - presumably it’s only on one side on the...

    Not unless the set coming off are showing irregular wear .... or unless you know you’ve hit a massive pothole or spend every day crashing over speed bumps

    Lag - Delay - Hesitation

    Erm maybe 8,000 now .... that’s 4 months worth of driving. Definitely worth it, makes a world of difference to the car... it’s hard to explain but the S4 always felt compromised in terms of performance, and now , well it isn’t ! APR say it’s 440bhp , I haven’t had it on the Dyno but I’d say that...

    Ran them for 20k last year with zero issues..... nothing to worry about and negligible difference to speedo etc.... would’ve had them again this year but couldn’t find them in the brand I prefer

    Lag - Delay - Hesitation

    Yeah yeah I dont care how much you want to promote and blow smoke up the a** of SB, all I can say is it absolutely didn’t fix the issue I had and actually made the drivability of the car worse. I wouldn’t recommend it ....

    Lag - Delay - Hesitation

    Sprint booster was terrible.... couldn’t wait to get it out of the car! No idea what APR have done to address the the gearbox / throttle lag problem, but whatever it was, it’s good !

    Lag - Delay - Hesitation

    I’d recommend a APR tune, The lag and hesitation thing is much much better, plus the stupid stop start this is defaulted to off ! Plus a little more performance always helps !

    Google Earth/Satellite Maps

    So - as someone who doesn’t have an active Audi connect license, if I find someone with obd11 or vcds is this likely to work or do I need a valid AC license???

    Performance non oiled filter

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a non oiled performance filter. Been running a BMC filter for a while but the washing and jeopardy of reoiling is getting to me. Anyone found a non oiled solution or should I just bung back in an original audi job? Cheers Ben

    A4 B9 rear brake pads/grinding noise

    Sure - you can get grit or a stone between the calliper and disk or disk and backing plate , but I my experience a stuck rock or something usually results in a terrible screeching noise ! could it be that the heat shield has been bent when the brakes were being bled and that they’re now lightly...
